. can we expect the same from the obama administration? >> will be important to watch. will. administration in 2008, you could handle the situation however you see fit and the international community weighed in for a cease-fire. we haven't had a lot of statements out of washington yet. we had statements from the british government. very interesting to see statements that obama makes on this. dagen: any idea how long this lasts? even though there might not be a supply disruption related to this, could you see it show up in the price of oil. >> with i rise 7%. and no one knows how this plays out. and in 2006, the hezbollah conflict again, relatively limited conflict and duration but people were concerned that it would spread. i don't think this one's friends. we have two major military campaigns in the region. dagen: biggest worry is it still in iraq? >> we have to watch that throughout this year. and it ends the nuclear threat. dagen: that is what the obama administration wants. >> we have a decision point in 2013. dagen: we have another year. thanks for taking the time. anyt
consulate attack. >>> what lawmakers say they want to know about the attack from the obama administration. >> and happening right now, live, these are live pictures senate arms services committee is holding a confirmation hearing for joseph denver. he is slated to take over at commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan. he would replace general john allen. allen was supposed to be pro momentsed to supreme allied commander in europe, but that's on hold right now. after questionable e-mails between allen and a woman in florida were discovered, it was part after investigation that led to the resignation of david petraeus, as ahead of the cia, because of an affair. >>> it is 7:09. breaking news, sal will tell us about it. >> reporter: i have two breakers. one is a house fire in san francisco. news chopper 2 is over this house fire, near the 101/260 interchange in san francisco. and just knowing a little bit about the area, this is an area where there have been plenty of house fires in the last year or two. it's kind of peculiar. firefighters say once portable heaters come in winter, the
.s. to press for an end to the offensive. but the obama administration lined up with the israelis. state department spokesman mark toner said the u.s. believes israel has the right to defend itself. >> our position is clear that there's no justification for the violence that hamas and other terrorist organizations are employing against israel. and the onus is on them to cease their rocket attacks so that this de-escalation can take place. >> suarez: earlier, i spoke with the israeli ambassador to the united states michael oren to discuss the latest developments. ambassador, what's the latest from tel aviv? where the strikes accurate? have missiles actually hit the city and is anyone snurt >> thankfully nobody was hurt. the rockets struck in the greater tel aviv area. the alarms went off. the sirens, prime minister netanyahu was in the city at the time to a bomb shelter and now this simply means that 4.5 million israelis-- over half the population of the state of israel-- has come under rocket fire from terrorists within gaza >> suarez: does this represent a significant of abilitys in the
of the israeli conflict can read the articles, discussion how a second term obama administration might behave that would open it up for israel to feel they need to strike quickly after the election and sort of punch first. i think that is part of what it is. frankly the israeli haves a track record. when they find somebody they have been looking for they take him out. melissa: where do we go from here? seems like it has really taken the whole thing up a notch? >> it has. it has gone up several notches. when i got up this morning reading through the news i wasn't concerned about it. i thought this would be classic couple of a day flare-up. over the course of the day events got more significant. much larger rocket that has been used in the past got fired against tel aviv you mentioned. first time in 20 years you heard air raid sirens, israeli citizens in a major city having to take shelter. this is very different than the usual rockets. there were, 300 usual small, kitush rockets. they're small. with 300 launched only three people died. with bigger rockets that have longer range you're talking
to the bottom of it. what republicans are saying is the obama administration has put out very conflicting stories about what happened in benghazi, when they knew about it, what they did about it and how they sort of perpetuated the idea this was a spontaneous attack. so the republicans on capitol hill are saying we only need to get through the double talk. get to the bottom of what happened. we lost an american am bas dpor. three other americans. president obama said i did everything i could as soon as we found out this is happening. then how come the whole place was left completely undefended? there's so many big ands of questions. that's what senator mccain was getting at yesterday when he said let's put together a committee that can look at this specifically, rather than having it scattered and half a dozen committees looking at it. this may give us a better answer faster. that's ultimately what everybody wants to keep the americans safe abroad and in the future. >> is this part of the mccain and obama conflict from 2008? >> i think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mcca
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> those republican senators were quick to respond to the
of the benghazi attack. did president obama and his administration do all they could to protect all americans killed in benghazi. >> the four americans were killed shawn smith's father ray believes his son basically called 911 for help and didn't get it. they are investigated the family has been waiting for more than two months. i would like to -- for to you address the families if you can on 9-11 as commander-in-chief did you issue any orders to try to protect their life? >> i will address the families not through the press. i will address the families directly as i already have. we will provide all the information that is available about what happened on that day. that's what the investigations are for. as i said repeatedly if people don't think we did everything we can to make sure that we saved the lives of folks who i sent there, and who were carrying out missions on behalf of the united states then you don't know how our defense department thinks or state department thinks or cia thinks. their number one priority is obviously to protect american lives. that's what our job is. >> the pre
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
the administration and with president obama. you didn't see a lot of people forming a circle around general petraeus and saying, look, he should continue in the job despite the scandal. >> the report in the journal indicates there was a lot of inner agency finger-pointing. >> that's right. over the time line that he released it, it was unexpected by other agencies. they weren't expecting him to do that. and then within the cia himself, he clashed with his own counter terrorism person over drone strikes. he wanted to align the strikes more with diplomatic efforts and the cia were after targets. and then on a smaller, but notable scale, he tends to schmooze with saw bored nets by going running with them. he would subject people come along on his athletic bouts. he runs a 6 to 7-minute mile. a few people at the cia could keep up. even these efforts by general petraeus to get to know people within the cia fell flat, and contentiousness under cut his relationships. >> and again, the "wall street journal" is reporting it sounded like general petraeus wanted to stay on. last monday he got a call from the h
a politically important lifeline to obama, u.n. ambassador dr. susan rice. but the overall issue remains highly political, highly partisan. even personal. libya's become a battle between president obama and republican senator john mccain, who insisted again today the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> and for the president of the united states, for two weeks afterwards, to deny that that was the case, is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> reporter: susan rice denied it, infuriating republicans. acting cia director mike morerel on the hill today briefed some lawmakers on libya. one, a democrat said the account backed rice, that u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect account that she passed on. >> that this was a spontaneous protest that involved something militant. that was the best information. they said they had at the time. >> reporter: there had been earlier attacks in benghazi. house republicans hammered the administration reaction. >> the people back here in washington continue to deny additional security. and they continued to do away with security t
